Lime Tree Class - Year 4
Welcome back after the Summer holidays! The children have settled incredible quickly since returning and starting Year 4. We will update this page reguarly with news from our class and our learning and can't wait to share it with you.
Lime Tree Class have been working very hard on their Stone Age topic. We have made cave painting using sandpaper to make it feel like the cave walls and wax crayons in the colours the Stone Age people would have used.
Lime Tree have been learning about Christingle and what it represents. Tudor came in to talk to us about the Christingle Service he did at the Church. The Christingle is an orange with a red ribbon wrapped around it. It has four sticks with sweets on and has a candle in the top. He explained that each part of the Christingle means something different. The orange represents the world. The red ribbon around the orange represents the Gods love wrapped around the world and the blood Jesus shed on the cross. The four sticks of sweets represent the four seasons and are symbols of God's creations. The lit candle represents Jesus, the light of the world, and the hope the he brings to people in darkness. Tudor lit all the candles and we said a prayer before we blew out the candles. We took our Christingles home at the end of the day to share with our families. We really enjoyed learning about the Christingle and we enjoyed the sweets as well!
